Academic Support

Students can access academic support through the following free services:

Academic Support Officers
Academic Support Officers are available to assist students with academic writing, referencing, understanding assessments and more. Students can contact the Student Services Office to make an appointment with an Academic Support Officer.

Peer-Mentoring Program
Peer mentors are available to provide academic support and advice to all NTI students. Peer mentors have been selected based on their outstanding academic results, writing skills and capacity to mentor other students.
A peer mentor can help you make your writing clearer and can help you structure your argument based on the requirements of your assignment. They can also direct you to a range of useful resources that can help you with your referencing skills.

Peer mentors are available to:

  • Answer students’ referencing questions
  • Show and explain appropriate writing resources
  • Answer general study skills questions
  • Give advice based on their experiences of studying at NTI

Students can contact peer-mentors through NTiLearn.
